Welcome to a frightfully fantastic autumn break

Bad weather outside? Come and have a good time with us! At IKEA Museum, creativity will flow all week. We’ll make scary Halloween creations, potato crafts (did you know that until the early 1950s, the autumn break was to allow the kids could to help with the potato harvest?), and we’ll find the rhythm in virtual gaming adventures.


In VERKSTAN, we’ll be busy all week. Get ready to create fantastically scary Halloween decorations, and colourful and fun patterns using potato stamps. Let your creativity run wild in VERKSTAN from Saturday 29 October to Friday 4 November, between 13:00 and 16:00.

Join us for a rhythmic VR quest

Come and join us for a musical VR adventure. In the VR game Beat Saber, you catch beats and match colours and directions to score points and keep the music playing. Come and experience this challenge for all senses and ages (and get a workout into the bargain). We will meet in the IKEA Museum entrance at 10:30 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The gaming session lasts until 11:30.

Take a guided tour

During the autumn break weekends, you’re welcome to join the museum’s knowledgeable guides for open tours. Read more here.
